About the New Testament Department

The New Testament is the account of the presence of the kingdom of heaven, and centers in the person of Jesus Christ. This is the cornerstone for all Christian ministry. The New Testament department is committed to teaching the New Testament as the full revelation of the covenant of God’s grace in Jesus Christ.

To this end, the New Testament curriculum enables students: 

  • To acquire a reading knowledge of New Testament Greek
  • To understand and value the historical context in which God accomplished his work in Christ, and through which he gave us the New Testament
  • To perceive the unity of the Old and New Testaments and the hermeneutical significance thereof
  • To grapple with the challenges of biblical interpretation
  • To recognize major biblical-theological themes of the New Testament and their importance for understanding the biblical message
  • To evaluate the ways in which the New Testament has been interpreted in the past
  • To develop skill in understanding and applying each of the books of the New Testament
